Hindustan Times (Gurugram) - - Gurugram / Delhi -

NEW DELHI: Delhi Po­lice busted a gang that pro­cured doc­u­ments of scrapped ve­hi­cles and then bought stolen cars of the same make and swapped their chas­sis num­bers.

Th­ese ve­hi­cles were then sold with new iden­ti­ties along with orig­i­nal-look­ing doc­u­ments. Two men have been ar­rested and 11 ve­hi­cles were re­cov­ered, po­lice said.

The two were iden­ti­fied as 36-year-old Rahis, from Muzaf­far­na­gar in UP, a veg­etable trader, and his 48-year-old as­so­ciate Jaipal from Jind, Haryana who runs an auto service sta­tion.

Deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice (north) Nupur Prasad said they re­ceived in­put on Tuesday about a gang of auto thieves who would come to Ma­jnu Ka Tila to sell a stolen car.
